Protz Performs at the Bunch

Roger Protz to host tutored tasting session at Bunch of Grapes
 The Bunch of Grapes pub in Pontypridd in hosting an evening tasting event with world renowned beer expert, Roger Protz, on Saturday 29 January.

Roger Protz is one of the world’s top beer writers and tasters and has written 20 books including the World Guide to Beer, The Ale Trail and best-seller 300 Beers To Try Before You Die. He was presented with the first ever Lifetime Achievement Award by the British Guild of Beer Writers in 2003.

Roger broadcasts and gives many tutored beer tasting sessions across the world. He contributes to beer and pub trade magazines as well as the Guardian and The Independent.

At the Bunch of Grapes, Roger will pick his top five award-winning Welsh beers and match them with a selection of dishes.

The event starts at 5pm and costs £10 per person. Places are limited so advance booking is essential.

Nick Otley, managing director of the Otley Brewing Company, said: “We’re very excited about hosting Roger Protz at the Bunch of Grapes for the first time next Saturday.

“The night promises to be insightful and fun and will be suitable to anyone who enjoys beer or fancies giving it a try for the first time. They’ll be something for everyone – especially for those who are fans of seeing how food and drink is successfully matched.

“We’re aiming to establish the Bunch of Grapes as a centre of excellence for real ale by hosting events with experts such as Roger Protz. We have many more events lined up for the rest of the year so if you’re interested in finding out more then sign up to the Bunch of Grapes Beer Academy and you’ll receive our free newsletter.”
